Course Description

This course is designed in consultation with police forces for senior police officers (in-post) who wish to enhance their career. UWTSD will use an online/blended approach to minimise the time that officers would need to take off from their duties which represents an important feature of this course.

The MSc will allow senior officers to gain recognition for prior learning and experience and develop enhanced skills in leadership both on an operational and strategic level.

Jobs & Career Perspectives

15 months after graduation, graduates of this course were asked about what they do and, if they are working, about their current job and their perspectives.

The modules and the assessments have been designed by the programme team collectively, to ensure they form a cohesive whole. The key purpose of the assessment scheme is to enable students to demonstrate individually that they have met the aims of the programmes and achieved the learning outcomes at the standard required for the level of study. Assessment will also be used to provide feedback to students to assist in subsequent learning. A range of summative assessment methods will be employed, i.e. assessment expressed in marks that count towards the calculation of the final mark. Coursework and practical assessments are used to test knowledge and understanding, but they tend to focus more on the development of cognitive, practical and key skills. Such methods are highly appropriate to the nature of the policing discipline as they facilitate authentic, workplace relevant assessment and practice. Coursework and practicals will be set in a variety of formats. ****These include:**** ** Essays** ** Reports** ** Portfolios** ** Research projects**
